BSL Initiates Tourism Seminar

Repost from D' Dagupan Dream:

DAGUPAN CITY –  Dagupan City Mayor Benjie S. Lim believes that to sell tourism is to bring excitement. True to his belief, Lim through the City Tourism Office (CTO) with the Department of Tourism-Region 1 (DOT-R1) Office staged a Tourist Reception Guides and Techniques Seminar last July 4-5.

Aside from CTO staff, tourism personnel from neighboring towns as well as students were invited to the two-day seminar at the BSL Hall of the Department of Education (DepEd) City Division Office.

During the seminar's opening program, Lim discussed with the participants  the big potential of the city and Pangasinan to become a tourist destination. He explained that participants outside the city were included because the province as a whole should be promoted if one of its town or city wants a tourism boom in its turf..

Lim challenged the participants to provide excitement and to urge their respective local councils to enact edicts for tourism advancement.

Lectures were facilitated by Beinvenido Claravall, senior lecturer from the Asian Institute of Tourism, University of the Philippines-Diliman.

DOT-R1 Regional Director Martin S. Valera also spoke during the seminar. 

Workshops and a graded mock tour in the city plaza’s vicinity and Dawel river cruise were also done to ensure the participants’ application of the techniques.

In the event’s closing ceremony, participants were given certificates of attendance. Also present in the event was Evangeline Dadat, DOT-R1 senior tourism operations officer and City Tourism Officer Rose Teng-Mejia. (CIO-Rex Marion C. Laguerta)
